With refreshing lime flavor and a festive look, these cool margaritas are perfect for parties. To make a no-alcohol version, simply replace the tequila with an equal amount of water.—Barbara Gersitz, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I knew this cool, fruit and creamy dessert was a winner the first time I tasted it. I confirmed that fact a few summers ago when I entered the recipe in a contest at work—it won first place. Co-workers still call to request it.

Whenever I make this salad, people comment on its attractive appearance and wonderful flavor. It's a festive side dish that works well for celebrations throughout the year. —Jane Vanderground, Macedonia, Ohio
I found this recipe in an area newspaper years ago. When this festive salad appears at a potluck, folks always come back for seconds...and sometimes thirds! I sometimes tint it with food coloring for the holidays.
This is a very festive-looking accompaniment to any holiday meal—and it's especially pretty with a Christmas buffet. I usually serve it on a cranberry-colored glass serving plate. We were first treated to Russian Creme by a "welcoming family" when we became members of our church. Since then, it's become a holiday tradition in our household.
"Working in food-related jobs over the years, I've collected lots of delicious recipes like this one," reveals Janice Todd of La Crosse, Wisconsin. "This fluffy fruity dessert has old-fashioned appeal."
Applesauce and strawberry chunks give substance to this lovely rose-colored treat from Julie Bick of Lyons, Ohio. "My mother-in-law shared the recipe for this refreshing gelatin salad, which is not only great-tasting, but good for you!"
